Combining a lightweight hardwood shutter with an engineered eco-friendly frame, the Cuba shutter allows for more panels to be hinged together.
This option is great if you’re looking to increase the number of panels per shutter or wish to cover a large window expanse.
With nine frame styles to choose from, the Cuba Shutter range can be tailor to suit your interior decor, be it modern or traditional.
The louvers of a Cuba shutter are available in four sizes, giving you real flexibility with this range. The paint finish is available in six shades of white.
The manufacturing process for Cuba Shutters
The hardwood used in the production of our Cuba Shutters is rested for six months before being twice kiln-dried. The computer-controlled drying process takes into account the specific climate conditions in the UK. This allows the wood to settle before being treated and ensures your Cuba Shutters won’t warp over time and will give you years of enjoyment.
The construction process for Cuba Shutters
Super-strong mortise and tenon joints are used in the production of our Cuba Shutters to minimise movement – movement that would otherwise cause cracking in the paint or stain finish and spoil the aesthetic finish of your Cuba Shutter. The stable construction of our Cuba Shutters ensures they maintain their finish, shape and structure.
The finishing touches
From the wood to the finish, all the materials used in the construction of your Cuba Shutters are of expert quality. We use marine grade staples to attach our tilt rods to your shutters and coat them in a bonding agent to ensure they remain secure.
A proprietary painting system coats our Cuba Shutters in 6 layers of paint or stain before finishing with a clear lacquer that contains a UV additive to ensure your shutters will not fade or yellow over time.
